i bet he doesn’t like lutefisk, either

ashwin madia is an indian-american veteran of the iraq war running as a democrat for the house of representatives in minnesota’s 3rd district, where i grew up. i find it shocking that the republicans are using racially-loaded language in their campaign. madia has said he didn’t see any coded racism. reading the transcript, i am not convinced. it sounds like this is a tight race, so it is no surprise that it would come to these sorts of tactics.

wow. just wow.

“Thanks for that stupid woman that you call council member to vote against the baseball stadium. Do you really think that that dumbass jungle monkey and her socialist ways is going to win? Why are you people full of envy for upstarting and growing a community that needs something like this? No wonder so many of you kill each other, none of you don't have brains and feed off like animals. Nice job socialists!!!!” — e-mail to D.C. Council Chairman Linda Cropp at 8:26 a.m. on Dec. 15. quoted in the washington post

wow, that is so tremendously stupid it just boggles the mind. opposing public financing for the welfare queens of major league baseball is some sort of socialist policy? someone needs to pull their head out of their ass.
